Jen is thrilled when the handsome Philip asks her out to the theatre though less so when Roy and Moss also invite themselves along. The play in question is 'Gay', a screamingly camp musical which Moss loves but Jen begins to question Philip's sexuality and is not flattered when he confesses he fancies her because she looks like a man. Roy meanwhile has an accident in the disabled toilet which results in his being loaded into a mini-van bound back to Manchester with other disabled play-goers and Jen is surprised to see Moss working behind the bar after he used the staff toilet.

The funniest episode I have ever seen
13 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Whoa, I just had to write this review, I am in the middle of this episode as I'm writing because I just couldn't continue watching this episode and breathe at the same time.

I'd just recently started watching this series and to say that I was impressed would be putting i mildly. I have seen the complete first season but not one episode of the six is as funny as the "After party" scene. This whole episode is a laughter riot but the scene that I mentioned is the peak. Honestly, I think that the whole comedy genre might have jumped the shark.

Any comedy fans out there I beg you to see this episode as I'm sure it won't let you down and as for the people who have just started watching IT crowd and are yet to see this episode... I envy you.

Now that I've regained my composure and I'm going back to watch this episode.
